Apple has a habit of making claims that don't always live up to the hype. Be it them inventing the slide to lock that another company already had, or them claiming to "be faster" when the test was obscure and skewed with optimized code on one side and non-optimized code on the other, to claiming that the iPhone3 was faster at browsing the web and again having the UK make them pull their ads... Like I said, Apple and Apple fans like to say a lot of things, and they are not always accurate.
It isn't like my stating the obvious is ground-breaking or anything...
On a separate note, not all Android fans hate Apple, and not all people that do not like Apple automatically assume the worst about the company. It's probably wise not to over-generalize when making those kind of comparisons, because when you do, you commit the same error of prejudice that the overzealous Android fans you are decrying also make. Anytime, we lump an entire section of people into a category by over-generalizing we commit an act of prejudice. Just food for thought...
Apple accused of cheating over G5 benchmarks ? The Register. While it's possible they may have gamed the system to their advantage, czerdrill anandtech link shows that the A5 performs better than the Tegra3 and so should the A5X. However, it's always in how one develops the software that can make a world of difference in addition to the hardware.

As for the generalizations, you're right of course, and I should practice what I preach, but this thread is a perfect example of just what I was saying. It only takes one minute of research yet you have people here saying "Apple is known to lie" (with zero proof) and it happens across this board a lot. TBH, I know that not ALL android users are like that. In fact, I'd go out on a limb that and say that 99.9% of android users are not like that. But that 0.1%? They're way louder then the rest.
Apple has plenty of flaws, and they do some pretty suspect things, but so do all the Android OEMs and Google. Objectivity is key and not just an unfounded bias for no reason other then you don't like Apple because you like Android.
well the a5x is still using the PowerVR SGX543...just 2 more of them...hopefully the omap5 will come out soon to shut them up.

The thing that gets me is, from an engineering perspective, I want to see the data or how the test or experiment was performed so it can be independently verified through peer review. This was a product launch, not a white paper, so I'm not expecting that level of detail from any company.
